Theatre production based on Aristotle Onassis’ life opens in Athens this week
The highly anticipated theatre production “I Want It All,” which is based on the life of famous Greek shipping merchant Aristotle Onassis, is set to premiere this week in Athens, featuring an all-star line-up of Greece’s top actors.
Starring and directing the play is Stamatis Fasoulis, who will take on the lead role as Aristotle Onassis. Fasoulis will theatrically depict the character and actions of a man who was and still is referred to as one of the world’s richest and most famous men. The shipping magnate amassed his own privately owned shipping fleet and had a tumultuous career both professionally and personally.
Onassis was one of the most powerful men of the 20th century, fiercely sharp-minded, he clashed with the greatest economic and political interests of that time and his romances with some of the most famous iconic women such as Tina Lebanon, Jackie Kennedy, and Maria Callas made worldwide headlines.
Playing the women in Aristotle’s love-life are Eugenia Dimitropoulou as Tina Lebabon, Dimitra Matsouka as Jackie Kennedy and Katerina Papoutsakis as Maria Callas.
Gorgeous Greek actress Dimitra Matsouka’s character transformation into Jackie Kennedy strikes a remarkable resemblance to the late fashion icon.
The life of Aristotle Onassis is one that has been recounted hundreds of times in publications, transcribed into movies and books, and now thanks to the mastermind of the talented Stamatis Fasoulis, the story of Onassis will be told and played out on the stage of the Pallas Theatre in Athens from October 11.
This show is not to be missed with outstanding sets, costumes and a cast of 30 that will impress the audience of the predicted sell-out shows.
